The room, the restaurant, the staff, the pool and the location make this one of the best hotels we have stayed at for some time. We explored the history of Melaka all the time knowing we would be welcomed back at the hotel by a young and enthusiastic team. Great job everyone

It’s a wonderful hotel. We stayed there three nights. The hotel is very new and in a good location to walk to the famous Jonker Walk, which only needs 2~3 minutes by walking. My husband enjoyed to have his meditation on the balcony with breeze every night. The hotel has private harbor. It was not necessary for us to queue... More
